Here is how Tron (TRX) has proved its critics wrong

At the time when Tron was created, the cryptocurrency received lots of criticism. Initially, many thought the project would be a failure and won’t last that long. Most crypto enthusiasts also believe that Tron would vanish under impracticable codes.

It doesn’t end there. When Tron unveiled its interest to take responsibility for creating a decentralized Web – which is the primary goal of Tron, it really wasn’t easy for Justin Sun and his team as they were criticized as a blockchain without no product. But were these critics correct?

Tron has answered all its critics

It was discovered that Tron had plagiarized its Whitepaper from Ethereum, people began to label Tron as a failure. Nonetheless, Tron has been very lucky in the crypto sphere.

Its Initial Coin Offering was held in September 2017 and it came at the time when cryptocurrency was beginning to gain fame, thus, offering the crypto sphere more than $500 billion by the end of the year. At that time, Tron – the cryptocurrency initially labeled as a failure, recorded a meteoritic sale of $70 million.

After releasing its press release, Tron increased from $0.04 to $0.3 in just a few weeks. Since then, it has attracted a lot of investors in the crypto market today, and even now, it is still doing a relatively good job (considering the bloodbath that crypto market has been seeing from time to time this year so far).

We do know that it is a normal phenomenon for a digital asset to undergo hefty disapprovals on the part of its community; one can clearly see that with Cardano (ADA) and Ripple (XRP). It was said that Cardano was bought by some people with no future promises of realistic profits (which is wrong). Ripple, on the other hand, received lots of critics on the number of FinTech companies that have really adopted its products.

Even though critics and misinformation have given tough time to Tron, the blockchain firm’s answers have proved to be worthwhile. Talking about some of its most recent successes, the cryptocurrency acquired BitTorrent, and it is also working on new projects such as the Project Atlas.

Tron’s MainNet and its Virtual Machine

Tron’s MainNet was created to gain independence from Ethereum and for developers to get the avenue to develop Dapps (Decentralized Applications) on Tron’s network. The MainNet was launched on May 31s this year. As GlobalCoinReport reported at that time, Tron’s MainNet didn’t bring a surge to its price, which may be because the publicity around it was over.

During that period, it seemed Tron needed to work more to attain investors’ prospects.  Also, Tron’s Virtual Machine was launched recently, but it still hasn’t surge its price (credit goes to the whole crypto market’s dip).

At the moment, Tron’s investors are discarding the misinformation and inadequacies, but looking at its long-term visions.

Tron’s surge and dips

The long-term prospects haven’t evidenced its value yet. At the time of writing, Tron is priced at $0.01752 and ranked No.13 according to CoinMarketCap. Not too long ago, Tron was labeled as one of the ‘most used’ cryptocurrencies on 200+ online stores according to Bitcoin Superstore.

Consequently, the crypto has received lots of attention lately – even though it allegedly erred by plagiarizing its ICO. Not to forget, Tron’s Reddit community has more than 65,000 users currently. With all that in mind, Tron is set to recover soon, all we need do is to wait and see what will occur before the year closes. If the market recovers well, the coin might follow suit efficiently, but it won’t surge alone as it can’t as of now at least.

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity

While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle.  Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance.  One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess.  That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS.  These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there.  While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.

What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?

In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount.  There are several examples of this in our day to day lives.  Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers.  Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has.  The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.

The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs.  Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…

I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018.  It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants.  Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse.  The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.

As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha.  In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets.  I can remember trading during my high school days.  It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom.  Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard.  Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.

Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques.  The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft.  That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.
